Paris - home for six years

Overview

Quote:

Quick Tips:

Best Way To Get Around:

No doubt about it, the Metro and RER, but the bus is good too. People often avoid it because they think it is difficult, but get a map, and it's not hard. I recommend "Le Petit Parisien", with three plans by arrondissement: 1) one normal plan, 2) one with metro/RER lines and stops overlaying the normal plan, and 3) one with bus routes and stops. The map is published by L'Editions Indispensable, www.massin.fr.

Arti

Restaurant | "Arti (Indian)"

Quote:
Great Indian food for Paris. Good use of spices. I lived in London for four years, so I've tried many. This one in Paris is worth returning to. They also have take-away. The restaurant is typical Indian decor, with carved wood and white linen on the tables. It's very busy, so be sure to reserve. Located near Metro Vaugirard.

Cote Vignes

Restaurant | "Cote Vignes (wine bar with food)"

Quote:
Great wine bar and restaurant. Good selection of wines. Try the chicken or beef kabobs with different sauces! They come on a planche (wooden board), with homemade fries. Reasonable. Small place and can get smoky.

Lots of choices, depending on your interest. All are in French, but it is a great opportunity to meet French-speaking people and practice your French, for those of you who speak some.
